VIAJES GRUPO 4
Corin and Juan are going to celebrate their anniversary next
June and Corin decides to give Juan a surprise
GRUPO 4: Viajes GRUPO 4, Can I help you?
CORIN: Yes I’m Corin López, and I’d like to know the price for
a trip to London.

CORIN: Well, next June.
GRUPO 4: The options are flying with Iberia from Valencia or fly
from Alicante with British Airways.

but you have more flying space. I mean, seats are much more
comfortable than in the rest of companies and of course you
don’t have to go to Valencia.
CORIN: Do they fly direct to London?
GRUPO 4: Both fly direct to Heathrow and Gatwick.
CORIN: We also need a double room in a hotel in the city
centre.
GRUPO 4: Well if you want the Iberia flight you have three
flights a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, all at 13:00.
CORIN: What about the hotel? We want the nearest one to
Picadilly.

better services. They serve an excellent buffet during
breakfast.
CORIN: Well, tell me the prices.
......
The next day Corin phones Viajes GRUPO 4 to confirm the
details of the flight.
CORIN: I would like to book the Royal Crown.
GRUPO 4: How many nights?
CORIN: 7 nights.
GRUPO 4: Let’s check, so you will be in London till 7th July if
you decide to go on the 29th.
CORIN: Could you get me a city map and information about
theatres and restaurants?
GRUPO 4: No problem. but I suggest surfing the Internet, it will
be easier. The tickets will be ready next Tuesday. Shall I send
them to you?
CORIN: No, thanks I’ll pick them up tomorrow. I want to give a
surprise to my husband.
